border around tr

P: n/a
I've a table.

The table must not have any border.
The TR (every line) must have a border, but not the lines between cells.
The TR.pages must have no border.

so .mytable{border:0px;}

..mytable tr{border:1px solid #000000;}
..mytable th{border:0px;}
..mytable tr.pages {border:0px;}

doesn't work, can't have the border around tr. The table has no border at
all.

may this work ?

or maybe it's possible to draw a line around an entire table, but no line
around the last one (it's what I'm trying to do)
I've all my table centered in the page, but I don't want the content of the
last cell outside the table (as the result is awfull). I'd like to remove
the border around the last line.

Not sure if I'm following, but maybe you're after something
like this?

table,td{

table{
border-width:1px 1px 0 1px;

td{

Sorry, around the last TR. The last TR should not have a border.

The last row in this case has the left and right border. I want to avoid
this.

Although tr's affect rendering, they are themselves not rendered, thus

Note that for this to produce a seamless border the cellspacing has to
be null.

No, he then still has the borders on the table which include
the last row.

He'll need to give the first and last column of td's a class,
except for the ones in the last row.
Taking class foo for the left td's and class bar for the right
ones, you'd get something like this:

td{border-top:1px solid black;}
td.foo{border-left:1px solid black;}
td.bar{border-right:1px solid black;}

The last line contain datas differents than foo (actually a grid for

that's why I wanted control on TR, in order to put a border aroud (aroud
foo) but not around bar

hope it's clear !

No, he then still has the borders on the table which include
the last row.

He'll need to give the first and last column of td's a class,
except for the ones in the last row.
Taking class foo for the left td's and class bar for the right
ones, you'd get something like this:

td{border-top:1px solid black;}
td.foo{border-left:1px solid black;}
td.bar{border-right:1px solid black;}

I'm confused, and I give up. I have no idea what he is trying to
accomplish, nor do I care.

To the OP: buy a decent CSS book.

I know ! but was missing the tr border. that was my first question.

The main purpose of this is allow my clients to manage their own CSS. I mean
the page will be shown as a frame source on other websites.

I wanted to keep it as simple as possible, with 4-5 styles to manage. But if
there is no other solution, I give up.

Also, I managed it by creating a "BIG" table without border, and putting the
foo datas in a table (where I show the border) and a cell of the big table
contains bar datas.

Thanks for help !

Worked for me, on Opera 8, and afaik works on all browsers. (though some
might have problem with border shorthand without width)
Did you have border-collapse:collapse? (borders for tablerows are ignored
in separated border modell). Or do you mean something else?

Where is your URL?

there are places on the internet, you know, where they offer to host
also your webmirracles for free. i do get the impression you found your
way online somehow, now its maybe time to let go of some of your babies
and let them have a home of their own, or maybe sharing a roof with who

Try the 'border-collapse: collapse' rule on the table.
